  • Conclusion: Asset management can be described as ‘the life cycle management of physical assets to achieve the stated outputs of the enterprise’. To achieve the appropriate level of asset management maturity, investment in people, processes and technology all increase the likelihood of developing an effective asset management system. Under-investment could result in

  • Conclusion:The security capabilities of Cloud vendors have evolved rapidly since 2008. Specifically, the three big Cloud vendors Microsoft, Google and AWS understand the importance of trust and assurance for their corporate and government customers and are each working aggressively on continual service improvement.

While the company has the technology and scale needed, it is only now outlining why organisations may wish to consider the Google Cloud Platform.

The popular new approach of replicating data to a secondary data centre enables rapid recovery but at a cost which is prohibitive for some applications or smaller

  • One of the most common and contentious infrastructure discussions that I have with clients today is the Public Cloud. The views of most IT executives have shifted from “if” to “when, what and how”.
